  1. I've got a couple fans connected to a fan hub powered with a SATA connection. The fans have a molex connector on them for power. Should I be connecting them as well? I'm moving my build to a new case and I noticed a few of them seem to have partially melted wires and it's either from heat(It's a mining rig) or current. Going to wrap them in electrical tape to make sure they're good but wanted to figure out how power should properly be hooked up. Thanks for any help in advance!
  2. Lots of people told me not to use Arch when I was still very new with Linux. Honestly though, I learned basically all I know about how Linux actually works from installing, using, and maintaining Arch installations. I run it as my main desktop now and it's running my 2 mining rigs. I'm a big fan and every time I use it I learn something new about what's going on behind the scenes. I think it's fine for beginners as long as you're willing to put in the time and do your research as to what you're doing. Also, the Arch Wiki is great for other distros too.
  3. Was it running hot before the update? Check your airflow and clear out any dust. Maybe reapply thermal paste as well. There's videos on YouTube for reapplying thermal compound to the T500.
  4. What research tools? Generally the best alt coins already have people talking about them. Finding unknown coins doesn't seem like a good business decision, it seems like speculative mining.
  5. Is your system 32 or 64bit? Lutris may be looking at the wrong dlls. Check out this post. If it's not that lmk. There's a few other solutions that seem to have worked for people online.
  6. Pretty sure you need extra packages for read/write access to NTFS though. Shouldn't be too hard though and will almost definitely work on Windows.
  7. Ah should've mentioned I'm at 1080p30.
  8. I use like 3500-4000 bitrate for my streams. 13000 is crazy. I find 3500-4000 to be good for an ok internet speed and good looking streams.
  9. @Froody129 what are your thoughts on staking then? I'm trying to learn more about cryptocurrencies and staking is a huge topic right now.
  10. You can get pretty close though. I'm just looking at suggestions from this reddit thread. Perhaps this?: https://www.dafont.com/pointfree.font
  11. https://www.raywenderlich.com for iOS, Android, Swift, and Kotlin tutorials. They have some Unity and Unreal Engine stuff too, but I haven't gone through those much, as I prefer Godot for game development. Disclaimer: I work for them but I used the site to learn iOS programming before I got hired.
  12. Mining goes up and down. I'm anticipating the prices of cryptocurrencies to go back up and make mining profitable again. Some people are even mining at a loss right now in anticipation that they can sell for a profit later. I'm mining in my dorm so I have free electricity ?.
  13. I've never used ZorinOS, but you should use a monospaced font. From this StackExchange post: Check out this font. Might be what you're looking for.
  14. There have been like 4 mining adventures now but everyone in the mining community seems to have neglected that you can mine for certain coins on FPGAs. I'm waiting to earn enough on my current GPU setup to build an FPGA rig(they're way more expensive than GPUs). Would anyone else want to see a mining adventure for FPGAs? If you don't know what an FPGA is, it stands for Field Programmable Gate Array. They're basically in between GPUs and ASICS for speed and variability in use.
  15. Well I've heard good things about Linux From Scratch, but I've never done it. I'm not sure if it's still up to date. Anyone here ever tried going through it?
